I don't know if downloading and reinstalling the latest version (which you
probably already have amyway) would help but heres the link:

> whatever it has to do, and of course Zoom is Not Responding during all
> that time.
> The information I have found so far advised to set the playback device

> Intriguingly, I note that once Zoom has been fully launched and exited,

> the supporting components have stayed around and available. For
> instance, today, the first time I launched Zoom, it took 10 minutes. The
> second time I launched it, it took less than one minute. Just a bit ago,
> I launched it again, and this time it took a full 20 minutes.
> Watching the performance monitor, I can see at least 20 entries for
> audiodg.exe, all with the same PID, but doing differing amounts of
> reading. Eventually, they get all done. During the process, I also see
> zCrashRpt (or something similar, it blinks in and out quickly). This

> I really need to make my Zoom application stable. I need to use it for
